Pandablitz Continues in SF Chronicle

As Taiwan is making a decision on the pandablitz on April 3, China seems to have stirred up more media interest in this topic. The SF Chronicle has another installment...the piece is that highly slanted one from Mark Magnier at the LA Times that I ripped up a few days ago. I sent the LA Times a letter about it....and while Magnier's piece has not a single word changed, some stuff appears to have been added at the end about the animals' high cost, along with some of the diplomatic history. I'll forward my letter to the Chronicle too.

Get a load of this promo by Newsweei on Yahoo...

Beijing is hoping the pair, Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan, whose names echo the Mandarin word for "reunion": tuanyuan, can help resolve the 56- year armed standoff between mainland China and Taiwan, report Beijing Bureau Chief Melinda Liu and Hong Kong Bureau Chief George Wehrfritz in the April 3 issue of Newsweek (on newsstands Monday, March 27).

That's right, folks! China hopes it can end ITS OWN MILITARY AGGRESSION by giving Taiwan a couple of pandas. LOL!!

Again, Newsweek trys to find balance (where there is none)which produces hilarious results.
